Endurance alone is power ultimate, so endure.
To live is to fight, for this world is but a hurricane of challenges all aimed at you. If it ever becomes too much, if you get down on your life, you will look for encouragement externally. But you won’t find it.
For unless you’re in a tribe of most die hard killers, most people make the appearance that they want the best for you, that they want you to succeed. But in reality, the thing most people least want is you to succeed.
Most people want you to fail.
For the people who gave up on you are fearful to run into you later in your life only to realize that you are successful and they missed out on a great opportunity.
Give substance to that fear.
For the people who tried to break you are secretly hoping that they broke you completely so you can never outdo them.
Shatter everyone of their hopes.
For the people of your past harbor secret desires that you failed and amounted to nothing in life.
Defy these desires.
For nothing can overtake the power of Endurance!
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated failure.
Endurance alone is power ultimate. So endure.
Strength and Honor,
